Barrington Personal Injury Lawyer for Construction Falls

Construction Accident Attorney Serving Palatine and the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago

Many construction jobs involve working at heights, sometimes with little or no fall protection. We know that a bad fall can cause major injuries, perhaps life-threatening or career-ending.

You are not necessarily limited to workers' compensation if you were injured in a construction site fall. The property owner or other parties may be liable if they caused or contributed to an unsafe condition that led to an accident.

At Joseph M. Lucas & Associates, LLC, we have the resources and experience to pursue third-party actions in construction accidents. Based in Barrington, our personal injury lawyers handle cases throughout the northwest suburbs. Call 847-381-8700 for a free consultation.

Construction Accidents: Falling Injuries

A fall can happen in an instant. It can happen to the most experienced worker. The injuries may result in cuts, bruises, tears and fractures that are temporarily disabling but will heal with time. But many falling accidents result in permanent or catastrophic injuries such as spinal injuries, a broken leg or pelvis, head trauma, facial injuries or internal bleeding.

We work with physicians and surgeons to assess the medical components of your case. This helps you guide your treatment to recover as quickly and fully as possible. It also helps us detail your damages to secure the maximum compensation.

One of the biggest challenges is demonstrating that another contractor or property owner created a safety hazard. We know how to investigate these cases to establish liability for a construction fall:

  • Unsecured ladders
  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Falling off a roof or framework
  • Holes or unfinished stairways
  • Heavy equipment tip overs
  • Falling objects
  • Slip-and-falls from obstructions or debris
